Those who already own Dark Souls 2 on Steam and are interested in picking up the Scholar of the First Sin edition will be happy to know that publisher Bandai Namco is offering them an upgrade path.

The new scheme – while encouraging double-dipping, does seem to favour those who haven’t bought the DLC for Dark Souls 2.

  • Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (DirectX11): $49.99
  • DirectX11 Upgrade price for existing owners of Dark Souls II on Steam: $29.99
  • DirectX11 Upgrade price for existing owners of Dark Souls II and all DLC on Steam: $19.99

It’s unclear if this offer is only valid on pre-orders or if it will continue to be available post-launch, but we’ve asked Namco to clarify.
